Kings, princes, dukes, women and watermen have all played their part in the 1000 years of firefighting - from the Romans to the present day - recorded in this text. The author has uncovered information on the Tudor auxiliary fire service, the silence of the press over a Victorian prince's firefighting escapades and the government's long indifference to fire which resulted in the near destruction of London in the Blitz.
